My journey this week takes me to a column titled “The Charles Schulz Philosophy” which I read years ago, a derivative of the Peanuts by Charles Schulz comic strip. As the columnist said, “You don’t have to actually answer the questions…just ponder on them. Read the questions straight through, and you will get the point.”
